The cases of mass killing have only arisen in the recent past. We are more often hearing stories of some random psychic people opening fire in public. Since 2006, there have been more than 200 mass killings in the USA alone. A mass killing incident takes place in every two weeks in the USA, which is too bad for an economy to deal with. Even the American President Mr. Barack Obama has spoken about his concerns to this matter.
With such flexible policies in America to own a licensed gun, these cases have only increased. We are going to talk about the jury's decision to one of such cases.
It was the night of July, 20 when a guy named James Holmes stepped into a movie theater in Aurora and opened fire on anybody whom he encountered.
Jamie Rohrs shared his experience as he and his family were one the few people who survived that day to be horrible. However, Holmes' attorneys have claimed that he is psychotic.
James' parents have pleaded on national television to not to award their "mentally ill" son with a death sentence.
Dr. Jonathan Woodcock, who interviewed him says that he has a vague memory and there is a possibility of him being completely sane that night.
On August 7, he was not given a death sentence but life in prison without parole for murdering the 12 people and injuring 70.
The juries needed two days and more than 6 hours to study and hear the case. They heard to James' parents who told juries about how their life changed after that night.
He was charged with 12 counts of murder and even when each count might have led him to a death sentence, he was given a life in prison.
A large number of people gathered to pay their last bid to the unfortunate people who lost their lives that night.
Those people who died included everyone from a young toddler to adults. We hope that God provide their families and friends with a strong will, so that they can overcome the pain.
